  9. 9. REVIEW OF THE BIG BANG THEORYIs it any good?This fun, well-written series features an endearing cast who provideviewers with lots of humorous moments. Leonard, Sheldon, and theirfriends fully embrace their genius and recognize their socialshortcomings. They also understand the value of friendship, loyalty,and staying true to themselves.Still, while the show is definitely funny, its storylines about camaraderieand romance arent exactly original. It also promotes all of theexpected clichés about people in the sciences -- they have a passionfor sci-fi characters and cant sell a pick-up line to save their lives, etc. -- and, in Penny, it sometimes puts forward the stereotypical "dumbblonde" image (though women with brains and awkwardness to matchthe guys have been introduced as the series has progressed). But inthe end, this show is about a group of nice guys basically having funand looking for love.
  10. 10. ANALYSIS OF REVIEW• The review itself is a positive one, it describes the show being fun, well written and a cast who provide lots of humour. However its storyline about camaraderie and romance aren’t exactly original however this is outweighed by the shows overall humour and popularity.
